  • Directions and hotels

    To get to Hannover University:

    • by train: get off at Hannover main station and either walk to the Welfenschloss (25 minutes according to google maps) or walk to the close-by tram station "Kröpcke". From there, either take line 4 or 5 heading to Garbsen or Stöcken respectively and get off at "Leibniz Universität" (just three stops from Kröpcke, costs 1,6 EUR (Kurzstreckenkarte)). 
    • by plane: Hannover has a small airport at Langenhagen. From there, take a local train (S5) to the main train station. Hannover also has direct (fast) train connections to the international airports of Hamburg and Frankfurt. See Bahn homepage for directions.
    • by car: see link "How to reach Leibniz University"
